Notice: Since this is an advanced job, I would not recommend it to a beginner as there may be some sections that might be too difficult to do for a person with limited knowledge of mechanics. Proceed at your own will. Please have an experienced friend help you out or just get an auto shop do it for you to lessen the chance of injury to yourself and your vehicle.
